Guerin Community Musical Production
Calling all Guerin Students, Guerin/Holy Cross Alums, Parents, Faculty, and Grade School Students to get involved in Guerin’s Community Musical Production of Honk!, the light-hearted musical that is based on “The Ugly Duckling.”
HONK! The Greatest Musical You’ve Never Heard of!
If I say, Honk!, you probably don’t think of a fantastic, Olivier-Award winning musical by the brilliant team of George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. Nope. You probably think horns, clown noses, and geese. If you do think of geese, you’re certainly on the right track. You know the story. A bunch of ducks are hatched one morning. One egg is big, brown, and ugly. The resulting duck is also quite big...brown...and ugly. Everybody mocks him. He runs away. He has an adventure. His mother searches for him. In the end, he turns out to be a swan. He is beautiful, and everyone rejoices.
Although it may seem like a concept best suited for children’s theatre, Honk!, in the able hands of Stiles and Drewe (best known for their additional music in Mary Poppins) turns out to be a brilliant evening in the theatre for all ages. Listen to one of the two album recordings found on Amazon or watch one of the several recordings on YouTube.
